36 weeks...we've done a lot of growing since then :) Reid asked me last night, deep down, what do you think baby is? I think naturally I expect it to be a girl, I don't know any different. So if I, he, we announce boy, I think it'll be a big surprise. Can a pregnancy carrying a girl really be THAT different than a pregnancy carrying a boy?? I guess we'll find out soon enough :)
One day after one of our prenatal appointments I decided to stop with the rush rush and the errands and just slow down and let Emma take the lead. We explored the Mall, I let her walk, we got a pretzel and had lots and lots of giggles
We did put a child lock on the inside, she can eventually figure it out. And then we switched the handle so we could lock it from the outside. Making sure, of course, that all furniture in her room is anchored to the wall and the video monitor works, so we can keep her in check. We're not really having to use any of these resources anymore and the newness of it all is wearing out...I hope. We're getting successful naps and bedtime, hopefully it's here to stay!
Mom's new highlights were a little too bright so we headed in one morning to get them toned down. I let the girls play with old phones...just to make sure they didn't disrupt the other clients. They hardly ever get screen time, so they thought it was the greatest thing!
The joys and blessings in the middle of the suffering.
My sister assured me that she was once in this stage of life too. The stomach flu going through the house twice, sometimes three times. That's what happens when you have two in school, different classroom and different germs. But the biggest "problem" is the toddler still in diapers. The transfer through dirty diapers is the surest way to pick something up. No matter how well you wash your hands...
So we'll take it day by day and do the best we can :)
Libby thought it was so funny, one night I beat her 44 to 4 ;)
Off to help the Hubs organize and file our taxes!
